  • Materials and Methods
  • Fig. S1. Structural similarities are observed between the neonatal piglet and fetal and infant human SVZ.
  • Fig. S2. oRG populate the postnatal piglet SVZ.
  • Fig. S3. Regional and temporal differences in NSPC numbers are observed in the postnatal piglet SVZ.
  • Fig. S4. Neurospheres generated from the piglet SVZ display regional and temporal heterogeneity.
  • Fig. S5. Migrating neuroblasts are abundant in the developing piglet brain.
  • Fig. S6. Immature neurons are seen in the piglet brain extending laterally from the anterior SVZ to the cortex.
  • Fig. S7. SPIO-impregnated cells are distributed throughout the piglet brain.
  • Fig. S8. T2* scans illustrate the distribution of SPIO nanoparticles compared with standard T2 MRI in the piglet brain.
  • Fig. S9. Distribution patterns of interneurons vary by subtype within the piglet prefrontal cortex.
  • Fig. S10. The abundance of neuroblasts within the A-DL–SVZ declines with age.
  • Fig. S11. Chronic hypoxia reduces the size of the piglet SVZ independent of cell death.
  • Fig. S12. Chronic hypoxia reduces NSPC numbers and activity in the piglet AE-SVZ.
  • Fig. S13. Chronic hypoxia reduces the number of immature neurons in layers II/III of the piglet frontal cortex.
  • Table S1. Minimal colocalization was observed between focally labeled cells and birth dating transcription factors indicative of ganglionic eminence origin in p14 piglets.
  • Table S2. Quantification and statistical analysis reveals the distribution and cell fate of SPIO-impregnated cells in the piglet cortex, 4 wpi.
  • Table S3. Human brain tissue was obtained from two cohorts of infants of similar ages.
  • Table S4. Regional assessment of excitatory and inhibitory neuron populations shows specific alterations in cell numbers throughout the piglet cortex after hypoxic exposure, p14.
  • Table S5. Group analysis of excitatory and inhibitory neurons throughout the piglet cortex shows specific regional differences after hypoxic exposure, p14.
  • Table S6. P values for all significant findings not listed in the main text.
